My wife and I have been attending summer productions since the late 90's, and I am now a board member and involved in hiring our artistic director and her staff and in raising money to support this wonderful asset to the Dorset/ Manchester community. The productions are varied, ranging from the hilarious to the thought provoking and from classics to new plays. We are very fortunate to have a professional theater of this quality in our town and to have the visionary and energetic leadership of Dina Janis, our artistic director.
I have been an actress, patron, volunteer usher, and assistant house manager at DTF between 1993-2002. The theatre played an invaluable role in my young life. The productions are always highly professional, staging a wonderful mixture of old favorites and nurturing new works. The children's programming has had many incarnations, but as a young adult growing up in a small town, it was the outreach of the late 90's that has had the most lasting impact in my life.
The Dorset Theatre is a wonderful, small community theatre. I am thrilled that they have chosen to bring community back into the theatre with a new leader; it has been lacking this the past few years.
great acting, great sets, beautiful theatre. The play selection was interesting and everyone I met seemed very nice. I would definitely come back again.
I am lucky enough to be working as the business manager for this theatre. I think the works it chooses are fresh and well produced. I am proud to be involved in its grand vision.
